Rohit Bansal: The revised GST rate has had a substantial impact on our pricing approach. We’ve had to carefully reconsider how we price our services to stay competitive and cover our operational expenses in light of this new tax rate. We conducted a comprehensive analysis to understand how the updated tax rate affects our costs, including server maintenance, development, and marketing.

To keep our app affordable for users, we made the decision to absorb a portion of the increased tax burden ourselves, rather than passing it all onto our customers. This strategic choice allowed us to strike a balance between staying competitive in the market and ensuring our app’s sustainability. We also explored ways to improve our internal processes to minimize the impact of the higher GST rate.
